Best-Ever Boutonnieres and Corsages with Sports Roses

August 16, 2013 Leave a reply

Designing the best boutonnieres and corsages during the fall season homecoming event can be a difficult task.

Sure, you can copy designs from previous years or simply buy off the supermarket shelf but that approach reeks of laziness and the inability to whip up something creative that befits the alumni that are coming back to visit their Alma Matter.

In this post, I will show you how to create the best-ever corsages and boutonnieres using sports roses. Not only will sports roses give your corsages and boutonnieres additional personality and creativity, but they will also serve as mementos that are worth keeping after the activity, something that generic corsages aren’t able to deliver.

Here are some of the ways you can incorporate sports roses into the corsages and boutonnieres that you will be handing out this coming fall season homecoming festivities.

  1. You can buy sports rose corsages straight from LOVEnterprises. If you want to get the corsages completely done and ready for pinning on the chest of proud alumni, you can order it as is. You have a wide selection of corsage types including football, baseball, and basketball corsages. For best results, order a mixture of the different types and let your visitors pick the corsage they like the most.

  2. You can also order sports roses in bulk and have a local supplier create the final product. This is recommended if you want to do something truly fancy with the corsages and boutonnieres. LOVEnterprises can ship individual sports rose stems to you in bulk and you can commission a separate supplier to do all the work depending on your preferred design.

  3. You can also use wrist corsages for your female visitors.It is a common perception that corsages can only be worn on the chest and are only reserved for men. This is not true. Wrist corsages are fast-becoming a rising trend that is very appealing to women. You can also use sports rose corsages slightly altered to fit this use.

Sports roses are perfect for making corsages that will last for many years thereafter. After all, you want the memories of that fall homecoming to last for a long time. Sports roses are perfect memorabilia for that purpose.

What homecoming event are you organizing and how are you planning to add sports roses to your corsages and boutonnieres?

Preparing for School and Fall Sports Success

August 9, 2013 Leave a reply

How many times has your team stumbled out of the gates to start a season?

Bad preparation is often at the root of all these miserable starts to a tournament. When teams don’t prepare well enough, the rust quickly shows and better prepared teams easily take advantage. As a result, teams suffer through multiple losses before finding their identity and stringing together wins.

But preparations for fall sports success need not be difficult. Armed with the right set of training techniques, teams can win a tournament because of a strong start.

In this post, I’ve listed down some of the most important training and preparation considerations that any team who wants to succeed should keep in mind. With this, summer training and preparation need not be hit-or-miss.

Here are the tips that you can implement to put your team in a better position to succeed come fall.

  1. Properly define the roles of each of your team members. Team success is closely tied to cooperation, which in turn is based on understanding the different roles that each team member must play. Do not head into a season or tournament without clarifying these roles.

  2. Reward effort and hardwork during training. Don’t wait for the games to matter before you begin recognizing hard work. Even something as simple as sports roses can boost morale and inspire the team to work harder in training. When you recognize effort and hardwork, you are showing that you are paying attention and that their efforts do not go unnoticed.

  3. Spend time developing chemistry and relationship within the team. Winning isn’t simply about skills. Often, chemistry and relationship lead to intangibles that make a good team great. Spend more time developing this and you will have better chance at success. Again, even something as simple as sports roses as gifts, tokens, or rewards can pull a team together.

  4. Focus on specific needs as opposed to general off-season programs. Many coaches and team directors fall into the trap of embracing generic training programs and forcing everyone on the team to do it. This is not good for peak performance. Focusing on specific needs will produce more results than if you were to subject an athlete to a generic training plan. In the end, remember that the specific skills are the most important factors that translate to winning.

  5. Don’t make your off-season training too long but don’t make it too short either. In many cases, a team is already fatigued heading into a tournament because of the rigorous training routine. This can result in defeat and the team members being demoralized. Of course, not training enough is also bad for performance. Balance the length of the training sessions to ensure that your team is performing at peak condition during fall.

There are many more tips for ensuring proper preparation to increase a team’s chances of success, but these are excellent starting points. With these, your team should not have to struggle to begin playing and winning the games that matter.

Do you see any tips here that you can implement to boost your team’s chances of success?

Trophies and Sports Roses: A Winning Combination

July 25, 2013 Leave a reply

While trophies are great awards for sporting accomplishments, they can be quickly forgotten when stacked along with countless other trophies received throughout an athlete’s career. How many ordinary trophies from competitions have found their way to the basement or attic because they weren’t unique enough to be displayed in the living room?

In this post, we’ll show you how you can bring life and uniqueness to even the simplest trophies using Sports Roses as nifty additions. Now, you may think that roses are only reserved for female athletes, but men can also appreciate of the trophy-rose combination. Everyone appreciates attention to detail!

By choosing to include Sports Roses, you are adding something new and different that is guaranteed to catch the attention of sports enthusiasts. Sports Roses are handcrafted artificial roses made from the same leather used to make baseballs, softballs, footballs, volleyballs, and basketballs. They are unique pieces that have the personality and creative flair needed to earn an inspired spot in the living room trophy case.

Here are some easy and fun ideas for adding Sports Roses to the prize pool for your next sporting event:

  1. Give Sports Roses bouquets together with a trophy. The Olympic committee hands out flower bouquets to podium finishers, so why not introduce Sports Roses bouquets to your event? Sports Roses bouquets can be custom-made to match your specific sporting event. Give trophies and Sports Roses bouquets to the winners to make your event stand out from all the rest.  You can be confident that the combination will be valued and appreciated. Or, if you like the look or fresh flowers, consider mixing Sports Roses into a traditional bouquet to make it really pop!

  2. Pin a Sports Rose boutonniere to make a stand-out trophy display. People prefer novel and unique prizes; if you give out ordinary looking trophies, people won’t be as excited to get them. Pinning a Sports Rose boutonniere to a trophy gives it that extra little something not available with stock trophies given out at so many events. A Sports Rose adds the finishing touch to instantly transform a plain trophy into a novelty.

  3. Have a local supplier make unique trophies with the Sports Rose as a highlight. Many event organizers stay away from custom-made trophies because they are expensive. It doesn’t have to be this way. Even a simple design made from just a steel rod can be unique if you incorporate Sports Roses into the design. Work with a local supplier to use Sports Roses as trophy highlights and accents while still making sure that the outcome is affordable.

  4. Make a medal using Sports Roses to go with trophies. You can show that the awards you are handing out are extra special if you give away a trophy and a medal at the same time. Remember, though, medals don’t always have to be the traditional design. Now, you can attach Sports Rose boutonnieres to the end of a nice lanyard and have a unique medal that you can proudly give out.

The best awards are those that are unique, unforgettable, and carefully crafted. Common and ordinary awards, on the other hand, get chucked to the side and quickly forgotten. Don’t allow the awards you give out at your event to be “just like any other.” Use Sports Roses to express your event’s passion for sports and to add personality to your awards.

Which of these options is a winning combination for your next event?
